    The Monogatari Series

    This wild ride is a series of light novels originally written by Nisio Isin. It's a story of a boy who was breifly a vampire and now human, kinda, and the world is filled with humans who are each troubled with their own aberrations. The story progresses through a series of arcs slowly adding character by character and their stories.

    Spoiler Rules
    To keep spoilers simple, and since people either watch this chronological or broadcast order, please label spoilers by season like 'Bakemonogatari' 'Owarimonogatari". You could be specific with the arcs inside those seasos but its up to you.

    Anyone else a fan of this series?
    Who's your favorite character?
    Any Aberrations/Arcs you liked?

    Its one of my favorites, and put Shaft as my top animation studio, slowly working my way through their other works as well. I'm only on the second series, but this series is increbable and not suprised its been running for nearly a decade. Great animation, thoughtful (and not so thoughtful dialouge there is lots and lots of dialouge. Tons of symbolism. If your the type to try to read into things in Anime, this is a good pick.

    This is one of those series that is pretty hit or miss, I've watched it before didn't really get into it at first then picked it up again and stuck with it some more, then I eventually dropped it again; not gonna try and watch it again if I couldn't get into it the second try. Though I have heard some people highly praise it so maybe there could be something I'm missing/not getting *shrugs* oh well, the art style is nice though imo and the character designs are neat. I do want to say it can get very dialogue heavy at some points though, which is not bad of course, but just letting some people know just in case they aren't really into that.
